Decembersleevers



Recommended Posts

My surgery is set for 12/5/12. My friend just had hers on 11/14/12. I was her "person", the one who took care of her after her surgery and before she went home. I am so glad I was able to experience the surgery from that side of the bench. I am excited to start a new, healthier life and appreciate the advise she has given me.

The big thing that sticks out is up to 5 days post op she questioned her decision to have the surgery. After the 5th day she started getting her strength back and the nausea subsided. And for her one week check up she lost 24 pounds!!!

Mine is December 5th.... I've been keeping myself busy absorbing everything I can find about this surgery and going OCD about it, so I don't have much time to worry, but when I do, I can't believe I am actually doing It. I'm nervous, have thought even about making a living will, and then at other times I feel okay... Lol

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
